Year 7 and Year 8 boys took part in the Tynedale Hardball Cricket Tournament which was held at the picturesque Corbridge Cricket Club. This coincided with the hottest day of the year (28 degrees Celsius) making the two matches tough to play. Hexham played two games: game one they lost to Corbridge Middle, game two they beat Ovingham on the last bowl. Unfortunately, Hexham ended up in third position due to the other schools having a superior run rate. It was a great afternoon of cricket, thank you to Tom Cant for organising.

Cash for Clothes Fundraiser - HMS PTA
As you may know, all the schools in our area are short of funds and Hexham Middle is no exception. You can help by donating any old or unwanted clothes.
Simply drop off any good quality unwanted clothes or accessories to the Cash for Clothes shop in Hexham and mention that your donation is on behalf of Hexham Middle School. For every 1kg received, Cash for Clothes will pay 40p to HMS PTA through an account.
The shop is situated on Maidens Walk opposite Marks & Spencer. If you are unable to take clothes to the shop, your child can take small bags directly to school where they will be held in Orchard Block before being collected and taken to the shop for donation.
For more information, please see the flyer from HMS PTA.
